I have gotten great results from a 3m product I picked up at West Marine..3m Gel coat restore/wax (I think) for heavy oxidation. I apply it with an electric buffer and just rub it in until the haze goes away. Did wonders for my Sportsman, just took some time and elbow grease..

I've  also got a '67 Reveler, the exterior finish was severly faded. Tried all kinds of wax but to no avail. The best thing I found was a product called Perfected II or Perfected III. You can get it at body shop supply stores. It's made by 3M, the 3M # is 06060. When applying it use only a foam pad on a orbital buffer, no wool pads. It will really help bring the old finish back.

Unfortunately I haven't found any silver bullets.  I have exhaust carbon on my stern drive and stern I can't clean off, but like you say, it seems like there should be something that will get it off out there.  Boat US did a big run-down on a bunch of hull cleaners in their last issue, but I haven't had time to read it yet.  Maybe there'll be some insight in there else maybe someone else on the list has had luck.
